      Caldera introduces our Print Bleed pixel cloning technology which improves the edge finish of canvases or edge-to-edge shaped prints. True Bleed opens a new route to total accuracy for print‑and‑cut textile, industrial and fine art work. It avoids white borders along cutting edges by replicating pixels, meaning patterns and masks are processed with razor-sharp precision for outstanding results.
